Evotec, Boehringer Ingelheim, and bioMérieux launch Aurobac, a joint venture to fight Antimicrobial Resistance
Evotec SE, Boehringer Ingelheim, a leading research-driven biopharmaceutical company, and bioMérieux, a world leader in in vitro diagnostics, announced today that they have formed a joint venture to create the next generation of antimicrobials along with actionable diagnostics to fight Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR).
The resulting company, Aurobac Therapeutics SAS, will combine the best-of-best capabilities of the three founding companies towards developing a new precision medicine approach, from diagnosis to cure. The aspiration is to succeed in the fight against AMR, which is a major public health threat. Having routine surgery such as caesarean sections or hip replacements may become life threatening, and complications from common diseases such as diabetes and injuries or cuts will become harder to manage because of AMR.
